Don't worry about any differences as the only things you're missing out on is paying higher prices for parts and being able to pass almost everything but a gas station...

Today I parked in the shade...

This may be a "hot" year. Start up to the house took 25 minutes and never got below 30 kph or above 190 kph, coolant temp hit 101c but dropped to 95c at idle in the driveway.

I know. You'd think that a "Gulf" edition wouldn't have to differentiate + and - when it comes to temperatures!

Temperature (ambient/engine)

Even in northern climate. It's practically Canada here. It cracks me up since positive is assumed if no negative sign.

Maybe it's a centigrade thing since much of winter hovers near zero but in F zero is quite a different beast still and I suppose especially in F it's funny to see the +. I don't think my previous car showed a plus just added - sign short for "fuck that's cold".

thats very weird. are you absolutely sure yours is an IS?

i have never heard of a true IS, 4.6 or 4.8, not having the E39 M5 cluster with warm up temp LED's in the Tachometer, and the oil temp gauge in place of the MPG one. definitely not a Euro or NA model.

Yes. Mine is a verified 4.8iS European spec and as far as we've found the only one in 2005 in Alpine White (custom ordered color) that's the outside air temp in the shade 10am.
